Amy's Reflections

This past weekend one of my best friends from childhood, Julie, let me know that her grandfather passed away. I haven’t seen her for a few years and wanted to make sure that I took the opportunity to see her and extend my sympathy. I managed to make it to...

Notes from Steve

I was in New York this week delivering my friend’s cat that I fostered for the last two and a half years. I did conference calls from Central Park and zoomed meetings from my friend’s basement office. I’m now without a cat (don’t anyone think of giving me one) and...

Notes from Steve

November was a rollercoaster for me. (Probably for a lot of people - but this is about me.) I’ve had that odd anticipatory butterfly gut feeling for the last 30 days. It’s a mixture of my foster cat going home (I’ve had her for 2.5 years - I’m in serious...

Greg's Greetings

A Word from Cindy

During the last few weeks, I had to relocate temporarily as my office was under construction for the new HVAC. During that time I had to clean off my desk and bulletin board. After being in the same office for a number of years, you find things you have forgotten...

A Message from the CEO

Someone said the other day when I said let’s think outside the box, “Oh, I hate that phrase.” For me, it’s hard to have an active conversation without filling it with phrases and adages and stories that help me express my point. And, visually, a phrase like ‘let’s think outside...

Notes from Steve

Dang. I’m overwhelmed, everyone - the cards, the gifts, the poems, the cupcakes … the videos and comments. Seriously overwhelmed. Thank you for helping me celebrate my 25th anniversary here at Iowa Specialty Hospitals and Clinics. It’s been an amazing journey. I remember talking to Quint Studer in Pensacola sometime...
